Grand architecture, creative minds, red carpet, and charity are the simplest words that come to mind when The Fashion Awards are on the horizon. This year’s awards ceremony is taking place in London at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 29th November after last year’s was restricted to online (as most things were). The British Fashion Council will be celebrating incredible talent in several categories with some nominees already being announced.
The night full of elegance and prestige will be hosted by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award-winning actor, singer, director, composer, and playwright Billy Porter. Porter is the epitome of the Awards night and will bring charisma and sophistication to the sold-out event.
Not only is the night celebrating the innovative efforts of designers, brands, creatives and individuals, the Fashion Awards is also a fundraising effort for the British Fashion Council Foundation in which is described as “charitable initiatives under one umbrella supporting the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on three areas: education, grant-giving, and business mentoring and institute of positive fashion”.
Some nominations have already been announced such as Designer of the Year with these evolutionary minds going head-to-head to decorate their shelves at home:
- Daniel Lee for Bottega Veneta
- Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga
- Jonathan Anderson for JW Anderson and Loewe
- Kim Jones for Dior Men and Fendi
- Miuccua Prada and Raf Simons for Prada
Some categories have in fact already been awarded with Mr Tommy Hilfiger already being awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award due to his continued commitment to inclusivity. IB Kamara will be honoured with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator due to his “contribution to culture, art, and fashion and his commitment to challenging stereotypes and the status quo,” The BFCF tweeted. The last of the winners already announced is Alessandro Michele with the Trailblazer Award.
Yet to be announced is the 15 designers, brands, creatives and or, individuals who are recognised as Leaders of Change, who have positively changed the fashion industry in one of the following categories: environment, people or creativity. These nominees will be announced also on the 29th November so hopefully they have a gown in the back of the wardrobe ready to dazzle on Monday night on the red carpet.
